This demo swerves to the edge of insanity and back again. It utilizes
static, old video games sound, and savage rhythms to create a masterpiece
of sound. Comparisons include anything by J.G Thirlwell, and Coil.
Very ambient/atmospheric at times, and driving at others. Lyrically
speaking, the demo contains very little in the spoken word category, it
instead utilizes its inherent musical quality to bring one to a state

This demo comes off cleaner than the previous tape. The songs are of
solid construction and tone. Tracks vary from ambient soundscapes, to
techno-dance, to bizarre live noise. Obvious comparisons include Coil,
ambient Controlled Bleeding, and the new Front 242. I often found myself
listening to parts of this tape when I was trying to goto sleep. Many
of the tracks have a very soothing sound to them. The two live tracks
are very interesting to listen too. They consist of someone beating on
an old set of tupperware, while someone else chants totally nonsensical
lyrics, and a female voice echoes the vocals and noise in the background.
Totally unlike anything I've ever heard, but highly amusing. Overall, a
good musical pick for its content.

Dave Wright does it again, this time with a wonderful experimental/trance
work that seems to outdo the previous two demos he's put out so far. The
sound quality has increased 10 fold, with no hiss of fuzz found on previous
demos, and the stylistic approach to this demo is highly motivated, although
several times throughout the demo I often wonder if Dave was experiencing an
altered state while composing.
The material as always is varied on this 90 minute cassette. This time
heavily stressed on light techno/trance/rave to Illusion of Safety/Jim
O'Rourke/HNAS style experimental noise movements. In fact, there is
almost a direct comparison of several tracks on the second side to the
Mimir _Mimyriad_ composition by O'Rourke/HNAS/KA-Spel that stresses
an experimental, spur of the moment, compositional approach. The trance
pieces are light on throbbing bass stressing the swaying moods of subtle
pacific rhythms. If you have ever acquired anything put out by Dave in the
past, or enjoy experimental industro/trance/whatever this demo will be
a pleasant surprise compared to some of the drivel produced by top record

Dave Wright & company never cease to amaze me. This time not only has their
music vaulted into whole new realms of the imagination, but it's hard to
distinguish where the imagination ends and the reality begins. The music
has been completely revitalized and reborn into a living organic prescence.
The music varies wildly from aural tantalizations at the level of Delerium,
and dare I say Lustmord, to intricate throbbing dance tracks that quite
bluntly point out that this music could only have been written at levels
of consciousness illegal in most countries. I'm surprised that not
breathing has only put out one 7" to date, when they surely deserve so much
more. A definite must for all those fans of cathartic sonic pleasure.
Not Breathing is:
dave-wright - emaxII, jupiter6, roland101, 202, guitar, Glitteridoo, tapeloops, percussion, zube tube, feedbackidoo, and acid blurps.
bruce brindamour - didgeridoo, Tibetan singing bowls, samples, & vocals
Demo's I-IV available for a a blank 90 minute tape and an SASE.
